    What would you say is unique to this collection, something that slighly different that hasnt come out before?

  2. Allie says:

    I’m really glad Revenge is Sweet is coming back, but only that and Seductive Intent are really catching my eye here. That might change when your review comes out… lol

    Also, I don’t have Carbon so I don’t know, but does it always look like that? I mean, in the picture it looks rather shimmery tbh, I got kind of excited until I saw that it was in fact Carbon. xD

    the lip glasses look really pretty.

    There are a lot of permanent and repromotes in this collection. I hope MAC makes up for it in pretty packaging, even though that usually means higher prices, and these prices are the same as their current prices so I’m assuming that there is no pretty packaging?

    Sorry for the run-on sentence. lol

      I don’t think these will be in special packaging. I agree that there are a lot of repromotes/permanents in this collection. It makes it less interesting from a consumer perspective, but it sure makes it less stressful on us bloggers!

        I didn’t consider that silver lining (re: beauty bloggers)…especially true of MAC with their trend of releasing 2 or 3 collections either at the same time or within a week of each other.
